Cultural Insight to Australia 1: Animals

Insight 1: Animals

Hi all. I’m from Australia, so I can tell you something about my country. I’d like to start with … something cute and cuddly. Me?koala

Er, not me, actually. I’m talking about my friend alongside – the koala.

Okay, can you see them in Australia? Yes, in every animal park or zoo. Can you see them in the wild? Hmmm, yes, but they can be difficult to find. They are small, and sit very high in trees, and they sleep for most of the day. Still, in some of the more ‘wilder’ parklands, you may well see them – although those fuzzy blobs sitting high in trees are not that interesting to look at.
